Meaning, all fixtures were circa 1992. If our house was a person - it would be wearing a scrunchie - and possibly some stone washed Guess jeans.
The other day feeling inspired by an etsy light fixture I saw for $70...I decided to give our sad little entryway light an update.
Here it is in all of its brass glory.
And here it is post makeover.
It makes me happy that people are welcomed into our home with an updside-down mason jar.
To do the makeover - we just turned off the breaker switch - unscrewed the fixture and I spray painted away. We let everything dry and put it back. Then I just set the mason jar on top and called it day.
Total cost? $3.67 for a can of black spray paint. I already had the jar.
When something is uglier than ug to begin with - you really can't ruin it. Totally takes the fear out of decorating for me!
Here's a fun blog with a links to more DIY projects - if you need any inspiration!
